BSCI356 The Future of the Brain (3 credits)
Summer Session II (July 12 - August 20, 2021)
Prerequisite: NEUR200 or BSCI353 or NEUR306
BSCI356 The Future of the Brain provides an overview of the current state of
brain research, with a focus on the advances made through worldwide
initiatives such as the BRAIN Initiative, the Human Brain Project, and the
Human Connectome Project. Topics to be covered include the industrialization
of modern neuroscience approach with big data, teamwork and open science; the
comprehensive mapping of neuronal networks; next-generation neurotechnologies
combining genetic toolkits, large-scale recording and virtual reality to
crack the brain function; using brain organoids to study human neurobiology
at the interface of in vitro and in vivo. Students will also be engaging in
discussing current literature and develop an independent focus review paper
on an area of recent advances in neuroscience.
Acceptable toward Biological Sciences Specialization Areas: GENB and PHNB.
